How is he pull starting it? You mean pop/bump starting? I am not aware of any way to pull start a 450 but you learn something new every day?

Are you saying it just won't start when kicking it or it physically won't kick down to start? If it simply won't start by kicking it, your intakes have gone to zero clearance. Pull starting it and not being able to kick start is usually intake valve clearances have gone to zero.

yes, bump starting.

did he do any work to his bike prior to this? like install a cam or piston. if so the cam including the decompression tollerances need to be set right.
